The King of Monsters is back in the Godzilla Resurgence trailer!
The King of Monsters is back on the big screen in Japan this summer as Toho Pictures has just released their Godzilla Resurgence trailer! Check it out in the player below for a look at the new film, the 29th Godzilla film from the legendary studio. Although a domestic release has not yet been confirmed, Godzilla Resurgence will hit the big screen in Japan July 29.
The first Godzilla film from Toho since 2004’s Godzilla: Final Wars, Godzilla Resurgence was filmed last summer with filmmakers Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi (known for their work on Neon Genesis Evangelion and the live-action Attack on Titan) co-directing the feature film. Anno also wrote the screenplay for the film while Higuchi oversaw the special effects.
Toho previously revealed they will utilize CG technology for the film with Higuchi calling it the “most terrifying” version of Godzilla to date. The co-director also previously said the filmmakers were going to push the film into a different direction from the happier installments, citing that the world has lost its innocence after the various terrorist attacks and natural disasters over the past few years.
“In movie after movie,” he told ABC News last year , “People merely ran away from the stampeding monster, and no one tried to face up to the issue of accountability.”
The big screen sequel to Gareth Edwards’ recent Godzilla, meanwhile, is slated to hit screens June 8, 2018 from Legendary and Universal Pictures. According to Legendary’s Comic-Con panel last year, he’ll be bringing a few friends. Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah were teased as potential foes.
